The M.Phil. in Classics is designed both for those who are already fully trained in the classical languages and for those who have completed non-language based degrees. The course provides students with an excellent grounding in postgraduate research skills in Classics. It also hones the sort of analytical, written, and verbal communication skills that are highly valued and effective in careers outside the university and education sectors. Since its establishment in 2008 the M.Phil. in Classics has attracted students from all over the world. Many have gone on to do doctoral studies in Trinity College and in other universities internationally.

The course has two compulsory elements. The weekly core module Research and Methods runs throughout the year and communicates core research skills and knowledge across the main strands of classical scholarship. All students also write a dissertation of 15,000 to 20,000 words on an agreed topic, individually supervised by a member of staff. The dissertation offers an opportunity to begin to specialise in a particular strand of scholarship, whether literary, philosophical, historical or archaeological. In addition, students choose four elective modules (or two if they take beginners' Greek or Latin), which likewise allow them to build specific skills and to follow their individual interests.

Recently taught electives include:
Greek Language;
Latin Language;
Classics and European Identity;
Textual Criticism;
Gender and Genre in Augustan Poetry;
Greeks and Barbarians;
Ancient Drama, Adaptation and Performance;
Curiosity and Crisis in the Late Fifth Century:
Receptions of the Sophists;
The Eternal City:
The Archaeology of the City of Rome;
Lost in the Labyrinth? 'Reading' Aegean Bronze Age Art;
Rulers and Image-making in the Hellenistic World.

For students with intermediate and advanced Greek and Latin a range of author- and topic-based modules are available. Students may also apply to take one Directed Reading module outside listed taught modules (within the areas of expertise of staff members) or an approved module from another M.Phil. course. Available options vary from year to year, subject to staffing demands.

The initial closing date for applications is 30th April and offers will be made on a rolling basis from January 2014. Should places remain unfilled, applications received after the initial closing date will be considered.

Overview

This is a two-year programme, designed to provide graduates with in-depth study of a range of areas within the field of Classics, and with the skills necessary for carrying out research in one or more classical disciplines. The study of ancient Greek or Latin is compulsory in the first year, and may be continued in the second; prior knowledge of the language is not required.

Course Structure

In the first year, all candidates include in their programme modules in Greek or Latin; normally these will be at the introductory level, though modules at higher levels will be prescribed for candidates who already possess introductory-level qualifications. Candidates are also required to write a dissertation of 15,000–20,000 words on a topic approved by the Head of the Department of Ancient Classics under the supervision of a designated supervisor. Modules include Introduction to Latin and Greek, Philosophy and Kingship in Antiquity, Ancient Cosmology, Popular Culture in Classical Athens, and Literature and Learning in the Second Century AD: Apuleius and his Contemporaries.

Career Options

Successful completion of the MA at a high level, with an appropriate degree of competence in a classical language, will normally equip students to proceed to study for a PhD, a necessary qualification for an academic career. In addition, employers across a wide range of professions value highly the wide range of intellectual skills which an MA in Classics develops.
